WEST CHESTER - In less than two weeks, the West Chester Fire Department has filled a pickup truck, a panel truck, and three skids with donations for American troops.
The fire department is collecting items for the Red Cross to send to troops serving in the Middle East.
Lieutenant Paul Kreiner of the West Chester Fire Department and his team spent Friday dividing donations and preparing to make another delivery to Red Cross headquarters in Hamilton. There, Red Cross workers are being helped by students from Garfield Junior High School in sorting items and preparing them to ship.
"We have collected toiletry items, snack foods, drink mixes, hard candy, videotapes, magazines and books, which will be distributed by the military as needed to our troops," Lieutenant Kreiner says.
Donations can be dropped off at any West Chester Fire Station.
